    I'm afraid that's not possible. At least in terms of a hard drive swap. The iBook uses an IDE hard drive while the MacBook uses a newer Sata interface hard drive. They are not compatible. Depending on your OS, you might be able to put your MacBook hard drive in an external enclosure and use it on the iBook that way. That's if you're using Leopard or a Tiger.
